Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The London American Label Year By Year 1960 (Audio CD)
It's hard to fault a collection like this- Including some very rare gems, as well as the well-known classics.
It's a mouth-watering start, with later and earlier years to come. I think I would have picked a few more rarities in place of songs already available elsewhere, but I understand that they have to cater for the mainstream.
Marv Johnson's "I love the way you love" is a new (to me) song that I will be playing a lot.
If it has one duff song, it's Vernon Taylor's version of "Mystery Train" which is somewhat let down by the "Benny Hill theme" saxaphone playing.
All in all, a very worth-while purchase with crystal clear sound

The "Benny Hill theme sax" was, of course, Boots Randolph's "Yakety sax", originally released in the UK on ....er, the London label! Forget the Benny Hill connection - it's still pure London. And, anyway, I thought the Vernon Taylor version of "Mystery train" was great.
